VFD displays are extremely reliable. In the whole time I've followed this
list I've never heard of a failure. I wouldn't worry bout it too much.

Thatis the Question.

I just ordered the new display. It was kind of on a whim so I sure hope
it's worth it.

As you know the "August special," which I hope is better than the September
or October specials, ;) is that you can send the old display back in for
$20.

I own one Squeezebox (which is what this display is
for) and one SLIMP3. Obviously if the new display goes out I can't put the
old one back in because the instructions have you clip a couple of
connectors (is this really necessary?). However, should the display go out
on my SLIMP3 I'm assuming I could use this one to replace it.

Would the nice folks at Slim Devices be willing to say what kind of failure
rate they've had on the old display? I'm assuming it will cost me much more
than $20 if I need to replace it on my SLIMP3 in the future.

Also, is there any kind of warranty on the new display?

Anyway, just wondering what everyone's thoughts were on sending the thing
back for the rebate.
